PRESIDENT'S MESSAGE

     As the New Year begins, we are looking forward to plan our goals for the coming year.
     But
before we can plan the coming year and our future goals, we need to review the past year to determine our effectiveness and activities this past year.  How can we improve our service to you and future generations?
                        
  The largest accomplishment in historic preservation was to assist the City of Federal Way with the acquisition of the Brooklake Community Center and surrounding property.  This has been a goal for decades, as Brooklake is at the heart of Federal Way's history.  This acquisition is an investment in the preservation of Federal Way's history for future generations.

 

            

  Secondly, the Historical Society of Federal Way joined forces a few years ago with the Highline Historical Society, Greater Kent Historical Society and the Tukwila Historical Society to promote the 150th Anniversary of the Civil War and the telegraph along Military Road.  The outcome has been several community programs throughout South King County and a brochure on the history of Military Road.  The best outcome in my mind was the synergy created by the local heritage organizations joining forces to tell the history of this early time in our country and region.  Many thanks to 4Culture, Barbara McMichael of SOCO and Karen Meador, AKCHO board member and member of this Society.                                                          Looking forward, the Historical Society of Federal Way will be reviewing the financial sustainablitiy of our organization, how to best serve the members and public and how to increase the public benefit of preserving the history of Greater Federal Way.
     Without 4Culture and our membership's financial support and individual donations, we would not be able to preserve and tell the story of Greater Federal Way for future generations.  Volunteers are at the heart of our organization.  Our volunteers and Board Members give many hours of their personal time as a dedicated group because they believe that history is an important part of our culture.
     I am looking forward to serving as President of the Historical Society of Federal Way this year.  The Society is looking forward to a new chapter in preserving Greater Federal Way's history.

Diana Noble-Gulliford, President               
Historical Society of Federal Way
